This detached stone-built former crofter's cottage with an open fire for 2 people is in the tiny village of Suladale between the coastal towns of Portree and Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye on the west coast of Scotland. The Old Cottage was once a humble crofter's dwelling, but it has now been lovingly restored and carefully renovated to become a delightfully comfortable holiday home in the tranquil hamlet of Suladale on the Isle of Skye. The owners have refurbished the cottage to ensure that it stays in keeping with its traditional Scottish character and surroundings, and the attractive accommodation includes a wood burning stove in the open p...lan living area, and a bedroom with four poster bed. Anyone looking for a romantic getaway will find it at The Old Cottage. The owners have created a warm and welcoming holiday cottage which reflects the special magic of the Isle of Skye.

Town: The crofters' hamlet of Suladale is a charming place over the sea to Skye situated between Portree and Dunvegan. A number of working crofts with livestock can still be seen here. Skye offers numerous visitor attractions including walking, fishing, bird-watching and horse riding at the stables close by. There's so much to see and do - take a boat trip out to sea from Portree; explore Dunvegan Castle, or climb up the Cuillin Mountains. The fabulous summer ceilidhs and lively pub sessions are not to be missed on any visit to this area, and they are a fantastic experience for locals and island visitors alike! Find out where the local tipple comes from at the popular brewery in Uig. Portree offers a number of fine restaurants, a good assortment of interesting shops and workshops which showcase local skills in arts and crafts.Read more

Cosy lounge, comfy bed. Bit on the cool side but once you figure out the heating it's alright. Great if you like an open fire. If you stay in May you will be woken each morning by the sound of a cuckoo in the trees outside the bedroom! Idyllic,
Local supermarket is only in Portree 20 minutes away!

Fantastic Location, clean, comfortable and the weather was good as well. Would definitely stay here again. If I had to point out one thing that could be improved it is the fridge, one with a small freezer box would be handy.

Booked the cottage through Sykes Cottages. Very prompt and good service.
Directions to Cottage on the Isle of Skye were accurate and with aid of
SatNav arrived no problem.
After a 10 hour journey we arrived at destination and were pleasantly
surprised. There were only two images of the cottage in the brochure which
didn't do it justice and these were external shots. So you can imagine we
were a little anxious on arrival.
The cottage was neat and tidy inside and out and was set back on a hill with
a steepish driveway and gate. Internally it was nicely decorated with a
welcoming open fire. The kitchen area was small but functional, bathroom
was adequate but well equipped. The one bedroom was impressive with a
four poster bed. Decent TV with Sky channels.
The cottage at Suladale is at the northern end of Skye but is only 20mins
driv to Portree which is great for fish and chips. We went in March, out of
season for boat rides, so i'd recommend going in late spring. Also take the
A87 to UIG, then A855 around the northern coastline of Skye past "The old
man of Storr'. Stunning!!
A few hours drive from cottage and your in the Western Highlands which are
mind blowing. A trip to Loch Ness and Urchart Castle is a must, allow a day
for that. Go to Plockton just past the main bridge at Skye (Kyle of Lochalsh).
Again out of season but a stunning little village and a late spring or summer
visit would be great.
For: Peace and tranquility. Cottage great although not ideal for a family of
4, more a romantic getaway for couples. Western Highlands. Talisker
Whisky distillery on Skye. The roads in late winter are really quiet. Old Man
Of Storr. Dunvegan Castle.
Against: Not enough pics of cottage which is better than in brochure. Metal
pans, take your own nonstick. Electric cookers take forever. Sofa bed not
ideal to sleep on. Unless your a hardy type go in late spring/summer as a
winter visit to Skye will literally blow you away.
